By Younes Moussaoui and Justin Franssen, Kalff Katz & Franssen

The third version of the Dutch remote gaming bill and critical Council of State advice were submitted to Parliament in late July. Younes Moussaoui and Justin Franssen of Kalff Katz & Franssen provide an update and analysis for iGaming Business.

On 22 July 2014, the third version of the remote gaming bill, accompanied by very critical advice of the Council of State and the response of the State Secretary to this advice, were submitted to Parliament. The bill has been slightly adjusted in comparison to the second version of the bill published in March 2014. However, the State Secretary did not feel the need to amend several points considered by the Council of State in its review of the bill. Some of these points concern the incompatibility of the bill
